CLEVELAND COUNTY, Oklahoma -

People in Oklahoma City, Moore and Norman turned in more than 200 pounds of medicine during the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office prescription drug round-up.

The roundup was held June 29 at four different sites, and netted 230 pounds of prescription drugs. All the drugs are taken to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) and destroyed.
